jemmlove12 :  I think it just means you’re 100% ready to be pregnant.  There’s no shame in waiting for this wedding.  I highly recommend you just start preparing yourself – that was what I did while we had to wait.  I started prenatals, started reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility, and really focused on the things I wanted to do NOW before I became pregnant (eating healthier, getting in shape, finding a new job, whatever).  This will help you feel like you’re still working towards that goal.

jemmlove12 :  The fertile window libido is real!  I highly recommend sitting yourself down with that book every time you’re feeling broody so you can come up with a plan on how to conceive.  Also, you could start temping ahead of time to “get to know” your body.  I maybe lasted two months with that while not TTC, but it was nice to familiarize myself with what I was getting myself into.

I can so relate to this! We started trying this summer and got pregnant, then miscarried in Sept. Due to some life changes we decided to hold off on TTC until this coming Summer. Of course when I got to get my IUD today they say they cant put it in until I get my period. So now we have to use condoms (which I hate!) and I want to just say f it and take our chances. But we have good reasons for waiting and things will be better then so I know rationally its the right thing to do. 

So sorry hun! I feel your pain.

May I suggest dedicating yourself to any home improvements that you need to have done before a baby comes?  It’s easy to forget how unpleasant the smell of paint, or standing on ladders, or carrying boxes up or down stairs can be when pregnant.  We had our windows replaced when getting my daughter’s nursery ready, and the smell of the caulk they used made me decide to literally move out of the house for a week.  And here I am again, pregnant and trying to sort through all the junk we stored in the “extra bedroom” at the last minute.  Your future pregnant self will thank you if you do that kind of stuff now!
